Neo-Druids, the contemporary followers of the ancient order of Druids, gather four times a year at Stonehenge on the Salisbury Plain of South-Central England. During the Winter and Summer Solstice and Equinox, the 3000 year old site is opened fully to spiritual revelry. All other days of the year one has to walk a path around the stones at no point getting close enough to walk and touch these 30ft. high giants. I welcomed the sunrise during a Winter Solstice gathering in December along with upwards of 1000 others. After the initial cheer as the sun crested the horizon, the crowd set in on New-Age style ceremonies, drumming, chanting, knighting and other rituals. I was surprised and happy to realize the spot definitely emanates a strong spiritual charge. Its hard to describe the feeling but it was as if I could feel the presence of the ancient societies and the 1000’s of years they had practiced their spiritual rituals in this very spot.
